FINDLAY, OH (Toledo News Now) -

The calendar says its spring, but you wouldn't be able to tell by Monday's weather.

Three inches of snow fell in Findlay, where students at Findlay City Schools are currently on spring break. Hancock County was under a Level One Snow Emergency Monday morning, and many people spent part of their day out shoveling snow.

Don Thebo and his dogs were the only ones at Riverbend Park, getting some exercise.

"People set their sights to spring and this is the kind of weather that, when it thaws, it's going to be pretty sloppy in the park system," said Gary Pruitt, director of the Hancock Park District. "It does hinder activities a bit."

But the winter weather didn't seem to deter activities at the recreation center.

"It seems like we have more kids that want to skate when there is snow," said Molly Kerr, an ice skating instructor. "A lot of my younger ones are like, ‘Oh, it's snowing, let's go skate!'"

Most residents, however, are hoping this is the last they see of snow for the year.
